Belgrade Bike Ride, V: Celebrating the 10-week anniversary of stem cell therapy with 20-mile “mini triathlon”
Ten weeks ago today, I had my second stem cell therapy for my right knee. I thought of it when I was walking 3 miles today to and from the Danube quay, where I rent my bikes for my mini triathlons. Even though I had walked over a 3 miles I felt no pain.
Furthermore, I now have proper biking pants and gloves. Which meant that the worn out bikes of the Danube rental place did not hurt my butt and hands as they had on previous rides.
And I also rode a part of the way in light rain. Which made the ride even more refreshing.
And when I was done with the hiking and biking part of the mini-triathlon, I went to the Tašmajdan pool and did my usual 750 m in it. And after all that, I still had no pain in my knee. Thank YOU, stem cells!
